Antique maintains regulated sale, consumption of liquor

first_img“There is a need to regulate consumption of liquor and other alcoholic beverages, as this measure will go a long way for the benefit of legitimate entrepreneurs and the protection of consumers,” she said. According to Cadiao, EO 59 was issued to curb profiteering in the sale of liquor and other alcoholic beverages. She, however, reminded the public on the prohibitions provided in her Executive Order (EO) No. 59, which regulates the sale and consumption of liquor and other alcoholic beverages during the extended GCQ in this province.“The sale of liquor and other alcoholic beverages to consumers below 21 or above 59 years old is strictly prohibited,” Cadiao said. She added that selling and purchasing of liquor and other alcoholic beverages in this province are only from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. every day. SAN JOSE, Antique – The provincial government will continue allowing the sale and purchase of liquor amid general community quarantine (GCQ) imposed to further suppress the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).“As long as people remain to be responsible, the liquor ban remains lifted,” said Gov. Rhodora Cadiao during the Antique Inter-Agency Task Force on COVID-19 press conference on May 27.  An undercover cop (right) inspects the two boxes of liquor he seized from a man (left) selling them in Barangay 3, San Jose, Antique during the liquor ban period.

Nelson Mandela casts his vote

first_img22 April 2009 Voting came to a temporary halt at the Killarney Country Club in Houghton, Johannesburg as South Africa’s favourite citizen, former president Nelson Mandela, cast his vote in the country’s 2009 general elections. Wearing his famous Madiba shirt in a bright yellow, and a black overcoat to ward off the morning chill – with his trademark 46664 Aids awareness badge pinned to it – Mandela walked into the voting station with the help of his cane, assisted by Gauteng Premier Paul Mashatile. Over 100 journalists, photographers and voters witnessed as he cast his vote in the presence of Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) chairperson Brigalia Bam. After casting his vote, Mandela cast a glorious smile and waved at the cheering crowd. Mandela, now 90 years old, could have qualified for a special vote on Monday or Tuesday, but chose to brave Wednesday’s chilly weather to make his mark, an inspiration to all citizens that if he could do it, so could they.Jacob Zuma’s daughters Meanwhile, outside the voting station, a queue of hundreds of voters snaked its way around the block. Among those present at the venue were African National Congress (ANC) president Jacob Zuma’s daughters, Duduzile and Phumzile. “It feels fantastic to witness Madiba casting his vote,” said Duduzile, who voted earlier that morning at the Holy Family Convent – where former president Thabo Mbeki also voted. Duduzile joked that her sister Phumzile, 22, who was a first-time voter, couldn’t find the ANC block on her ballot. “She could not recognise her own father,” laughed Duduzile. Speaking to BuaNews after Madiba had cast his vote, Bam said that initial reports were that the voting process was going “amazingly well” countrywide. At some voting stations, she said, voters had started queuing from before dawn. Bam said the IEC expected as many as 20-million South Africans to visit the polling stations countrywide before they closed at 9pm. Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Did fake news spark Tuesday’s market rally?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest On the last day in February farmers — and the rest of the world for that matter — were anxiously waiting to hear what President Trump was going to say as he addressed Congress for the first time. But what got the attention of producers earlier in the day was a major price move to the upside for corn and soybean trade in Chicago. The spike was caused by a news story about possible changes in the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS) mandate. That story, like many have in recent weeks, may not have been that reliable.“At the beginning of the morning on Tuesday, leaked information suggested that there was going to be a significant change to the way the ethanol blender credits are working,” said Jon Scheve, a grain merchandiser with Superior Feed Ingredients. “By midday, the White House would not confirm whether or not that information was real and there might not be a change at all. The market through all of that yesterday was just trying to figure out what would happen if anything actually does change with the RFS.”The news that was leaked early in the day consisted of the White House looking at a proposal to add more ethanol usage during hotter months and would aim to curb imports of biodiesel from Argentina by ensuring domestic producers qualify for a currently-expired tax credit.Call it fake news, call it an information leak gone awry, but in the end it was the catalyst for a record day for corn trade. Over 350,000 May corn contracts were traded Tuesday. Since harvest, corn has only traded more than 100,000 contracts of the front month twice, today and Election Day.“I think this could possibly be the future of trading this year,” Scheve said. “With this new administration, how we are getting our information is also new. The markets and even the news organizations aren’t quite sure how to handle that yet and so I expect we will see many news items like the one we saw on Feb. 28 that will generate some short bursts of excitement.”At the close on Feb. 28 corn was only up 4 after being up 18 and beans were up 13 after being up 35 for the briefest of moments, keeping farmers and traders on their toes.last_img read more
